And so, the process begins. We will be spending a lot of time over the next 8 months logging in and out, building, updating, adding to, and finally submitting our entry to next year’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Achievement Awards.
With 4 awards under our belt; 1 bronze and 3 silver, our aim for this submission is to achieve Gold. Our Compliance Co-Ordinator, Jan O’Mahoney, attended the RoSPA Awards Excellence forum earlier this month and came away with a wealth of knowledge and tips so fingers crossed.
